Nintendo3DS™ [RPG]

Follow Keta, the protagonist of Youkai Watch, through Sakura New Town as he fights and collects youkai (japanese ghosts) - in very 'Pokemon' style gameplay. Don't be fooled however, it is by no means a clone. Level-5, the developers, have done just what it seems they set out to: create a great RPG for the Nintendo 3DS.

As a player you can have 3 active youkai out in battle. By using your stylus and the touch screen you can control your youkai in battle by aiming and rotating for extra damage. With each youkai having individual moves, who is in your roster really counts! 

As a semi-unique feature Level-5 has included furigana (a Japanese reading aide) in the game - making it a pretty good pickup for anyone looking to have fun while improving their Japanese.

PlayStation3™ / PlayStation Vita™ [RPG]

The Masou Kishin series has changed consoles again, this time hitting the Vita and PS3 on August 22nd. The story starts off exactly where Masou Kishin 2 left off, but still keeping the gameplay the same. As a hybrid simulation/RPG the developers have rounded it off with original characters, robots, and special moves. 
Let's hit on to what the fans of the series want to know: "what makes this better than the last". Well not even considering the story progression, Masou Kishin III will sport robot models rendered in realistic proportions and reports have stated that all battle sequences will be created with 3D graphics.
